A call for public archives for biological image data

With the advances in modern imaging technologies, the wealth of digital imaging data is rising exponentially. While this will lead to exciting breakthroughs (such as the integration of image data with other data types) new challenges are also presenting themselves. The storage of data, its complexity and interoperability are but a few of the, seemingly universal, challenges for today’s life scientists.


Publication of the 2018 Euro-BioImaging Industry Board Annual Report

If you work for a company in the imaging research field, you may be interested in reading the 2018 Euro-BioImaging Industry Board (EBIB) Annual Report. It'll give you a good insight into the benefits of Board membership.

There are currently 14 members of the EBIB and these members welcome all companies working in the imaging field to join the Euro-BioImaging Industry Board. 


Collaborations form at the Industry Board's Image Data Workshop

Last week the Euro-BioImaging Industry Board held an exciting workshop addressing the challenges and opportunities associated with image data. Thirty participants representing Nodes/imaging facilities, academia and companies in imaging field discussed hot topics such as FAIR data, meta data, file formats and bioimage archives. When asked about what was the most useful outcome of the workshop, one participant said "viewing problems from different angles" while another commented "engaging with the partners from industry and academia".



The Global BioImaging "Exchange of Experience III" attracted 64 participants worldwide!

The Global BioImaging EoE III took place on September 14th-15th at the Charles Perkins Centre of the University of Sydney. It attracted 64 participants representing - for the third time in a row - imaging infrastructures from all contintents!

The worksop succeeded in paving the way to ensure a sustainable future for the Global BioImaging network. Although the H2020 funding is coming to an end in November 2018, more EoE worshops are already planned and the network's activities will continue in the future!
